Road to Roland Garros for 2 Williams Sisters”

Road to Roland Garros for 2 Williams Sisters”
By Rose Paton
Special to WTAFANS.COM

From success of 2 sisters “ Williams ” both last year and this year,it shows one important type of woman tennis, using power and body stronger more than using direction and tactics in fighting. However claycourt is the court that different from other courts that player have to slide body to take the ball,the surface of court made of crushed shale, stone or brick Its top surface requires regular maintenance that player have to play slow.So the style to play of “ Williams ” who using power and stronger to hit tennis ball will have more for they can resist the opponent who well to hit ball in backyard and hit sticky.

To consider from achievement on claycourt ,Serena Williams,the world first ranked who set sight to win all matches she plays in this year but the goal was destroyed by Justine Henin,the world fourth ranked player from Belgium whse the important weapon is one-handed backhand. Justine Henin-Hardenne can stop Serena on claycourt at Charleston in set 2 and she became the champ. After that, Serena withdrawn from playing at Berlin to increase time to get ready herself before the second Grand Slam of the year.The withdrawal of Serena make she have only the Telecom Italia Master tournament held in Rome next week or coming to the point, Serena must proves her completeness,excellence,and familiarity with the claycourt. Judging from the tournaments she plays on the claycourt, there is only a warm-up tournament and it is the tournament she must to defend ger champion also.Serena should be player as Defensive player ,however the form to play seem to be offensive oner, using aggressive tactics in an attempt to force errors from their opponents. They take risks in order to win points quickly. Offensive players often have a good serve and can volley well, in which case they usually employ "serve and volley" tactics - serving powerfully and trying to volley the return of serve for a winner.

Venus Williams,the elder sister have a sympton of injury at stomach that she is in doubt if she will be completely healed in time. Her achievement on claycourt is rather not good when she have fighting very erracticly to get the final round before beaten by Amelie Mauresmo that she retired in the third set.

Moreover the achievement of 2 Belgiums : Kim Clijster and Justine Henin, players with ability to play well both offensively and defensively.This year ,they are great better than last year ,so this year is the opportunity for them, if they have the method to play completely, it maybe is the big trouble of Williams while the Willaims met to each other in final last year that they have to prevent their score, maybe experinecing the high pressure the tought opponent like this two Belgium players.

Thus, Grand Slam defending champion like Serena and the runner-up like her older sister has a clearly tougher chance than last year .It is their provocation including pressure.

Is this one of those articles trying to say the williams cannot play on clay or is it trying to say this time the williams have been outclassed?

ummm...
is this translated using LOGO MEDIA SOFTWARE?

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

This stupid writer forget to note that Venus had
won some of the major tournaments on clay and
Serena also won clay court slam plus that rome
master.
When Richard says there is a racism directed against his children even the jounalists contribute to that then there are people here who are saying that they don't see anything of that sort.
Jennifer is in a slump, Martina Hingis has retired
because of not winning tournament and the best
belgium tennis players can't come close to Venus and Serena. No body has seen any article on these
subjects. But it is Venus and Serena could not play
on clay, it is venus and serena use only power to win tournament. If you don't like anybody, you don't talk about him or her.
White people are hypocrites. They want Venus and
Serena to come to these tournaments so that they
will draw a crow for tournament intake and if they
did not come, some stupid jounalist will have an idea to put them down. If they are at certain tournament, then the williams sisters are the best
such tournament can have.
I wish we didn't have this board so as to avoid seeing bull shit jounalism.

You are so right and when Richard talk about racism and his daughter everybody jumps down his throat. They rant and put the the sisters but when the sisters are not at they tournments they are running around like chickens with their heads cut off oh, how hyporcritical of these white folks. I am glad V&S do not read this crap. When the sisters leave tennis it is going to go back to the same boring tennis it was before and all of these tournments will start losing money again tennis will never be the same when the sisters retire. Probabl half of these tournments will be deleted. These white people, what can I say..grant it they are not all alike some of them are genuin but the majority of then are hateful towards sucessful blacks. I do not trust them as far as I could see them.

Thoes girls never get credit for making women's tennis what it is today. All they get is a lot of negative feed back. If they played in 30 tournments including the grand slams and won all of them they will not get the credit they deserve.
